Shelter House of Fairfax County held its 6th Annual Changing Lives Benefit at Westwood Country Club on April 11, 2019. This was a great opportunity to hear about Shelter House and the critical services it provides to families experiencing homelessness and domestic violence, and to hear their amazing stories of the many lives transformed by Shelter House. Over 300 guests attended, who provided critical funding from individuals, businesses and law enforcement, who help support the programs and people served by Shelter House.
George Mason University Fraternity and Sorority Life is proud to support Shelter House in honor of Greek Week to raise funds to benefit homelessness and domestic violence services that are provided in the community. They have agreed to match contributions up to $30,000 for the Shelter House community.
Did you know that the Fairfax County domestic violence hotline receives over 240 calls per month? Did you know that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men will be a victim of domestic violence in their lifetime? Did you know that Shelter House was able to serve 742 households in the last year, comprised of 2300 individuals – 60% of which are children? And that 40% of the homeless in our community are victims of domestic violence?
The vision of Shelter House is a community free of homelessness and domestic violence; to inspire you to Be the One who takes action; to Be the one that touches so many; to Be the one to change lives, create hope and truly make a difference.
